  • QotW: Best Goalscoring Forward Under 30?

    it seems very underwhelming these days when I see the type of striker 25-35 mil can buy ...

    Dzeko, Mandzukić, Bacca, Jackson? not exactly earth-shattering names ...

    Falcão? he's 29 (well, officially at least), and has barely ever played in the Champions League ...

    Benteke? Lukaku? have they done anything of note yet? and lets not even start on Doumbia ...

    Agüero and Benzema seem to be true quality ... but can they carry the goalscoring burden on their own, *and* actually have it mean something?

    Higuaín and Cavani are supposed to be right up there, and I wish they were, but they are more known for choking than delivering ...

    the Harry Kanes and Mauro Icardis of the world have only had one breakout season ...

    so, it got me thinking about goalscorers at large: leaving aside the MSN of Barça, and Cristiano at Real Madrid, who's the best goalscoring forward in the world under 30? is there even close to a consensus on this?

    and, as a bonus follow-up: compared to the 90s and 00s, is there a shortage of genuine superstar strikers nowadays?

    Yeah there aren't any good strikers, Messi and Ronaldo aside

      dude, Lewandowski ... he's the best classic #9 at the moment ... even Diego Costa is better than some of the names your mentioned there ...

      Edit: football is changed ... one target man mentality is not working anymore ... wingers and attacking midfielders grab more goals ... compared to 90s ... I don't think there's a huge difference ...

          It seems that there was an abundance of these as recently as a three years ago, and now I agree there is a a dearth, with question marks over many of the established names.

          Diego Costa has to be up there, but I agree he is more about aggression/determination than natural skill. Aguero, sure. There are probably the only two really top class goal scoring strikers remaining in the premier league. Maybe Rooney when he drifts back into form.

          I suppose we now have to talk about Morata as a result of his scoring record in the business end of the CL, but he still has a lot to do (and his week in week out stats need to improve) to be universally regarded as 'up there'.

          The draft will reveal a lot about what we as a forum think about this.

              If we are talking about #9, then Suárez and Agüero.

                    Xaviesta doesn't even bother to read other people's posts before blundering in with his obstinate and cack-handed replies

                        Chicharito, obviously.

                          I think Gareth Bale has potential to become a 40 goals per season player. He is obviously played out position at Madrid and not their offensive focus.

                            Yes! RM should play Chimp in the middle and sell Benzema to Arsenal.
